Research and Innovations for Healthcare Professions Conference

April 27-29, 2016 | Venice, Italy


The second annual conference focused on research and innovations that advance performance of the health professions and was structured into 3 themes:

  • The Vision for Our Health Professions
  • Healthcare Without Borders
  • Preparing for Digital Healthcare.

New paradigms, practices and digital solutions that are innovating and pushing traditional pedagogical approaches were discussed. The program aimed to stimulate creative thinking and collaborations that address the demand for effective, integrated, 21st century health professions education. Attendees were leaders and stakeholders in health professions education, including educators, administrators, deans, and program directors from Europe and around the world who shared their vision and expertise in transforming the health professions learning experience.

The location of the conference at the historic Hilton Molino Stucky, on the banks of picturesque Giudecca Island in Venice, Italy, provided an opportunity for participants to explore new ideas, and make new friends and colleagues with the aim of improving the care of patients.
